Critical care nurse calls for building sites to be shut down

Dave Carr, a critical care nurse working in one of central London’s biggest hospitals, calls for construction sites to be shut down to ease the pressure on the NHS and save lives.

“What we’re saying as health workers is, you need to think about yourselves, you need to think about your family, you need to think about the impact of you, or any of your family and friends, getting sick on the NHS at the moment … You need to shut down your sites, you need to shut them down now, and you need to shut them down for the duration of this virus.”

  1. Our world faces a common enemy: COVID-19. The virus does not care about nationality or ethnicity, faction or faith. It attacks all, relentlessly.

    Meanwhile, armed conflict rages on around the world.

    The most vulnerable — women and children, people with disabilities, the marginalized and the displaced — pay the highest price. They are also at the highest risk of suffering devastating losses from COVID-19.

    Let’s not forget that in war-ravaged countries, health systems have collapsed.

    Health professionals, already few in number, have often been targeted. Refugees and others displaced by violent conflict are doubly vulnerable. The fury of the virus illustrates the folly of war.

    That is why today, I am calling for an immediate global ceasefire in all corners of the world.

    – UN Secretary General,
    António Guterres
